Default SMC lipo battery reviews

Good Morning

Any reviews for the SMC Race Formula 7.4V 5200mAh 50C
Product Code: 5250-2S2P battery? Great price (32.95). Wanted to see if anyone has good, bad experiences with these. Lookin for a couple for my sons and my rustler. Thanks

You can find all the info you desire about SMC batteries at the above link. That's where I went (searched for it) before my purchase of some 2S shorties.

One additional question - which 2S Lipo pack would be better to purchase for a Traxxas Rustler. One that is 2S1P or 2S2P?

Really does not make to much of a difference, the 2S2P hardcases are just fine, especially in a Rustler. If you were racing onroad (TC or Pro10) then they could be more picky, i.e. 2 cells in parallel vs series etc. And a bunch of other technicalities related to discharge rates etc. etc.

Take a look at the 5200 90C packs. Same price as the 50C right now. I have 6 of them and a 1900kv motor expected for delivery today.

I do love their batteries but I've only used their 4s packs.
